    Anyone Want Any Back Issues of VG Magazine?

    I wasn't quite sure where else to post this, where it would be seen (other than the Vintage section), so sorry if it's in the wrong place. My wife and I are starting to clean out our house as we get ready to put it on the market, and we have tons of stuff to get rid of. I have a few boxes of...

    How 'bout a LPF Vintage Les Paul Calendar?

    I haven't seen this idea come up for a while (as far as I know) so I thought I'd bring it up now. With all the other LPF merchandise that's been for sale recently, I thought a calendar might be a nice next project...and something we could produce every year. And with all the killer guitars and...

    ’61 SG/LP Back from the Dead…and as good as…Gold!

    In case you hadn’t already seen this at the other forum, I thought I’d consolidate the info and pics, in one dedicated thread here. This was a project that was inspired by a similar ’61 SG/LP formerly owned by Charlie Daughtry, and refinished in gold by Dave Johnson. The first time I saw a...

    LPF Booth at next year's Arlington show?

    After reading the following from the Philly show thread, it got me thinking... ...how awesome would it be if the LPF did something similar at the Arlington show? Sure, a lot of members already know each other and hang out at the show (and outside the show). But I can't help but think that if...

    Flame + Grain + Flecks + 1 Pc. Board = 2012 CR8 NGD

    I know some of you have seen this one before, but I figured I'd do a thread on it anyway. Especially since I finally got around to checking under my nut...(yep, everything looks ok down there!). With all the 1 piece versus 2 piece fingerboard discussions around, here, I figured I'd check this...

    Naked No More! ’55 Goldtop Restoration by DJ

    You may remember the thread I posted about my “Naked Beauty” several months back. If not, you can find it here: http://www.lespaulforum.com/forum/showthread.php?t=171890&highlight=naked At the time I bought this guitar (which I thought was a ’56), I had every intention of using it for a...

    NGD Murphy Aged ’03 Brazilian R8 Stinger!

    As you’re probably aware, JimmyAce (John) is now the proud owner of my (former) ’03 Braz R0 Stinger…a guitar I never thought I’d part with. John finally figured out how I “tick”, and what it takes for me to let go of guitars I otherwise have no intention of giving up. I’m generally not...

    Less Tall DC Junior Octave Guitar (a.k.a. Jr. Junior!)

    Well, this is something I've been wanting to do for a long time...a Less Tall DC Junior Octave guitar. After doing numerous octave "Standards" and other miscellaneous small builds, this was my first attempt at a junior type of build. I'm actually in the middle of building two of them, with one...

    54 Year-Old Naked Beauty (with friend)

    Well, after diving head-first into the Historic world almost seven years ago, I finally decided to see what all this vintage love was all about. Now, having purchased three vintage Les Pauls over the past four months, I think I’m finally starting to “get it”. Two of my three recent...

    Source for vintage style ABR-1 saddles?

    I'm trying to find a good source for replacement vintage style ABR-1 saddles, that are the correct material and fit for a vintage ABR-1. I guess the vintage ones were nickel plated brass (correct me if I'm wrong). I see that Allparts has "nickel" saddles, but it's unclear whether these are...

These are front row seats, with an after show meet and greet with Tommy, at a cost of $100 per ticket. The concert is being held on Thursday, May 27th at 8:00 p.m. at the Higher...

    Since I couldn't trust the big brown truck...(mega flametop content)...

    So, because I couldn't trust the big brown truck (or the white one) to deliver this baby safely, a few weeks ago I decided to drive 600 miles round trip to meet up with my buddy Rob (lpflametop), who was kind enough to part with this POS (thanks Rob!). You've probably already seen pics of this...

    Les Paul Tribute Guitar?

    With the unfortunate passing of Les Paul :rip , and this being the 50th Anniversary of the '59, what do you think the chances are that we will see a Les Paul Tribute guitar this year? Please note that this is pure speculation on my part, and based on nothing that I've heard...just wondering...

    Less Tall Travel Guitar

    In the past I used to post my build threads in the Dan’s Guitar Shop section, but since there doesn’t appear to be much activity there these days, I thought I’d post here instead. Meanwhile, if the Mods feel that this thread is in anyway inappropriate for this section, please feel free to move...

    '09 50th Anniv. Pilot Run #2

    I already posted a couple of these photos in another thread, but thought I'd take the opportunity to formally introduce the 50th Anniversary 1959 Les Paul Pilot Run #2. This is the guitar that the Custom Shop is using for most of their promos and brochures this year. To start, here it is as it...

    Any Historic Top Re-Carves? (to look more vintage)

    I'm just curious... Many of us go through great lengths to make our historics look as vintage as possible. And as I'm learning more and more about the differences between the top carve of historics versus vintage bursts, I can't help but wonder whether anyone, during the refin process, has...

    The First '09 I've Seen For Sale (R8)

    I thought this was interesting. This is the first '09 I've seen for sale, but it's an R8. I wonder if it has the updates? And yes, I know this probably should have gone in the Baywatch section, but this is more "newsworthy" than that...
